Inspired by .....

In a recent issue of National Geographic there was a great article about carnivorous plants and it featured some absolutely fabulous photographs of a few of these weird and wonderful flora.

So I was inspired to have a go at some flower photography of my own. Ok so I don't have access to lots of exotic plants and neither do I have an expensive camera and set of lenses which were no doubt used to capture the amazing magazine images but these are my first efforts.

While they may not be worthy of gracing the pages of National Geographic it was a fun way to while away some time and something to build on and try and improve with practise.

I've had many attempts at photographing the plants and flowers in my garden. I wish I could make a better job of it. I periodically post some on my other blog at

I like the super macro on the crocus (?). The veining on the petals is lovely.
